The Hungarian Prime Minister has recently been honoured by the New York Young Republican Club with a prestigious award named after Republican politician, US State Secretary John Foster Dulles.
Ambassador Takács: It is Possible to Win Elections by Upholding Conservative Values
The New York Young Republican Club held its 110th Annual Gala on 10 December. During the event, Hungarian Ambassador to the US Szabolcs Takács accepted the award for Viktor Orbán. Addressing the attendees, the ambassador said that receiving this award is a great honour for both the prime minister and for Hungary. After thanking the organization for the award on behalf of the prime minister, Ambassador Takács spoke about the many successes Hungary has achieved thanks to the Hungarian conservative government’s policies over the past decade. He highlighted that it is indeed possible to win elections democratically by practicing politics along conservative values. He emphasized that the Hungarian government believes in core conservative values such as family and nation, and upholds the principle that children are a blessing. The ambassador noted that the Hungarian conservative government does not shy away from proclaiming its Christian convictions and that God is above us all. He continued by saying that what ‘Hungary has learned as the last Mohican of Europe’ is that the fight against the dictatorship of liberalism is an important one that should not be taken lightly. He stressed that conservatives have a duty to take back the media and universities, dominated by liberals, and wage a global fight against liberalism.
The Prime Minister’s political director Balázs Orbán also highlighted the award on his social media, posting a video of the ceremony. In his post, Balázs Orbán said: ‘The largest and oldest association for Republican youth in the United States has awarded Prime Minister Viktor Orbán the John Foster Dulles Award which is given to those who take up the fight against communist forces.’
In the laudation during the award ceremony, Viktor Orbán was praised as a dedicated defender of the Hungarian nation, including the people of the country itself and those who are Hungarian but live outside of the borders in the Carpathian Basin, ripped away from their motherland by the Trianon Treaty.
‘He reformed the media landscape in Hungary to ensure that it serves the national interests, not the interests of internationalist elites. He built a security fence along Hungary’s southern border to keep illegals from entering the country. He created a tax policy that embraces natalism, reducing taxes substantially once families have three or more children. He oversees elections that return results in one day and which have been more closely monitored by international observers than any other in the European Union. He opened Hungary’s arms to communities torn away over a century ago and allowed them to repatriate to their homeland. And he gave George Soros the boot,’ it was highlighted during the laudation.
